    RIP Charles Nelson Reiley

    http://www.startribune.com/1526/story/1210555.html

    I seriously thought he was already dead. I remember watching him on the Match game. So 2 more B rated actors/actresses to die in the next week.

    That's understandable. One of his quotes was;

    "The thing that's funny is that everyone thinks I'm dead."


    BTW, it's Reilly, not Riley.

    Rest in peace Charles. You enntertained the world for so many years.

    I remember watching him on "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir"

    I also liked him on the Match Game & Hollywood Squares. Some of his responses were hilarious.

    Charles once said in an interview that “When I die, it’s going to read, ‘Game Show Fixture Passes Away.’

    The only think I ever saw him on was the Match Game. He was pretty funny though...really odd...but funny!

    I always liked him! Did you know he was also a sitcom director? He directed three episodes of "Evening Shade", and I believe he was also on an episode of "The Drew Carey Show".

    He was one of the characters that really made the "Match Game" work.
    He usually cracked me up atleast once every show . . . or atleast put a smile on my face!

    Shame to lose such a guy with the quick one liners.
